Melissa Stiles received her degree in Architecture and worked in the field for ten years before founding her jewelry company.
Stiles works in various materials including hand-pigmented resin, laser cut stainless steel, brushed aluminum, powder-coated enamel, and silver. These materials lend themselves to blending different means of fabrication resulting in a collection of minimal, durable jewelry in cheerful colors with bold graphic designs.
Melissa works from her home on Portland, Oregon. In partnership with her husband, Dan Stiles they produce a number of products ranging from art objects, personal accessories, to housewares.
